1 TOWNS’S OOH LA LA DU CLOS DES PETITES VIGNES. Best Dog, BOB and Best Puppy. Lovely type. Best mover in the class today. Long lean head & strong, fairly short neck. Excellent angulation fore & aft. Good depth of chest, excellent bone & strong loin. Correct topline and excellent bend of stifle. Moved freely covering the ground well. 

2 SLADDEN’S TYRBECHGYN BELIEVE YOU WILL AT CANEMAMANS. Similar comments apply just not the refinement in head of 1 at the moment. Excellent angulation, spring of rib & bone. Well let down hocks. Moved soundly. 

3 SANDERSON’S OWLSPOINT TROUBLE AGAIN. Compact outline. Not quite the return of upper arm of 1 and 2. Nice depth of chest. Good width of upper & lower thigh. Moved with drive.

Junior Bitch 5, 6

Front movement was not very good in any of the exhibits in this class but my winner was the best - when she stopped messing about and moved in a straight line.

1 SCOURFIELD & KANTOR’S YOU CAN STAY FOR THE NIGHT WITH DANTON (IMP HU) [ATC AV03197HUN]. Res Best Bitch. Lovely outline and quite mature for age. Shown in excellent muscular condition. Lovely lean head, with nice skull shape and large, oval eye. Large open nose. Excellent forechest and correct topline. Excellent width of upper & lower thigh; well let down hocks. Moved well & typically on good well-arched feet. 

2 CRITCHLEY’S BRACCORIONS NEVER SAY NEVER. Nice outline & similar comments apply just not as good in front movement as 1. Shown in excellent muscular condition. 

3 DODDS & PEARSON’S BRACCORION'S NESTA VIPAS. Another nice one, not as mature as 2 but has all the essentials. Lovely head, eye and expression.


Post Graduate Bitch 2 1 abs

1 ANGUS’S BRACCORION'S LIVIN IT UP AT SPARKENHOE. Lovely length of head with nice eye & expression. Muzzle of sufficient depth. Good proportions of skull to muzzle. Well made throughout.
